World-Class Celebration for Automobile Aficionados

The Telluride Festival of Cars and Colors is Telluride’s 4-day, automotive enthusiast celebration! 

Set among the canyons of the San Juan Mountains, Cars and Colors is placed against the spectacular backdrop of the area's September fall foliage. Throughout the span of four days vintage, exotic, and high-end restoration vehicles are showcased throughout town. Classic and vintage motorcycles or airplanes more your taste? They've got those too! With four distinct Concours venues, there is something cool for everyone. Don't forget to submit your photos to the Cars & Colors photo contest!

All events are limited to pass holders unless otherwise noted.
